Written by Lucy Coleman

Packed full of French flavour and idyllic settings this is a romantic, heart-warming and unputdownable new novel about life and love

Suddenly unemployed and single, Anna escapes to her parents’ beautiful house in France for a much needed recharge – and to work out what she wants to do next with her life now her carefully mapped out plan has gone out the window.

Anna gives herself 6 months to recuperate, all the while helping renovate her parents’ adjoining gites into picturesque B&Bs. But working alongside the ruggedly handsome Sam on the renovation project, she didn’t expect for life to take an unexpected, if not unwelcome, twist…




Fall In Love with France! 225


Spending the summer months in France when it’s the middle of January in chilly Scotland is a lovely place to be – even if it’s only in a book!

This is a terrific read – great characterisation, wonderful setting and a very entertaining story line. In a village setting, we get to know the locals and the way of life whilst all the time dealing with a mystery and the personal lives of the main characters. There isn’t a moment to yawn in this one, it’s all go from the beginning to the very last page.

A really well written novel, this one will keep your attention whilst lifting your spirits and making you think a bit about life and all in a good way. It’s release in February is perfect as, after the recent snow and now the wind and rain, a little sunshine – even if it does come from a book – is just the ticket! I loved this one from beginning to end, well done Lucy Coleman. I suspect more than a few readers will be checking out a summer break in France in the coming months!

My thanks to publishers Aria for approving my NetGalley request for this novel. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

About the Author

Lucy Coleman always knew that one day she would write, but first life took her on a wonderful journey of self-discovery for which she is very grateful.

Family life and two very diverse careers later she now spends most days glued to a keyboard, which she refers to as her personal quality time.

‘It’s only when you know who you are that you truly understand what makes you happy – and writing about love, life and relationships makes me leap out of bed every morning!’

If she isn’t online she’s either playing with the kids, whose imaginations seem to know no bounds, or painting something. As a serial house mover together with her lovely husband, there is always a new challenge to keep her occupied!
